Re: The Perils of Rafting On

I agree with the oversize anchor approach too. I have an oversized Danforth and it's the biggest that will fit in my anchor locker. I would like to get one of the new style anchors such as a Mantus but I'll need to build a good anchor roller to put it on as I do not want to have to disassemble/reassemble every time I anchor. Danforths hold very well in the right bottom but sometimes don't reset well. I've never had my boat break loose when anchored on my own, though haven't anchored out in anything over 25 knot winds yet.
